the obama administration and the reporters who cover the president. >> the events this weekend made you rethink the level of transparency within the administration. >> and the fact that the president wanted to play golf with a golf pro? >> and what obama didn't want a photo op with tiger, tiger is the 1%, tiger is rich. >> and he was my partner and as i said, we won. >> this white house is the most closed white house we've ever had. i don't think the golf thing would be such a big issue except it's kind of the straw that broke the camel's back. >> i think it's safe to say, folks, obama's now spent more time with tiger woods than he has with the republican leadership. >> and he's an avid golfer and so am i. >> this white house determined the press corps so far has taken it, what they will cover and what they won't. >> the first official confirmation that anybody in this room received of that-- that the president was playing golf was from the white house press office. no reporter had any access different from the-- >> and anybody has a chance to play 18 holes with tiger woods ought to be
white president obama invades the press corps, yesterday the fearless leader took time out of the busy golf schedule to call into the radio show to talk about the looming sequester cuts and during the hard hitting interview, president obama says all republicans care about are the evil rascally rich people. and you can't make this stuff up. listen to this. >> and in speaker boehner is out there in the wall street journal and understand the impact. and i don't understand why anyone would risk this when it will impact so many people across economic lines, racial lines, party lines, i mean, it's just going to be something that hits everybody. >> well, my sense is that their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations. and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts that could slow down our recovery over coasting tax loopholes and that's the thing that binds their party together at this point. and this is a major argument, obviously, we've been having for the last three years. >> oh, president demagogue strikes again. is
national security and thousands of jobs? the effect i have boehner's argument to make president obama seem reasonable. after all, the president certainly agrees with boehner, the sequester cuts and different jobs, the difference is that obama wants to avoid them. couldn't have said it better, that was byron york. >> well? >> well, it's not an honor you get every day. what can i say? that was exactly what i wrote, but it wasn't all that i wrote. i mean, what i basically wrote was, why is john boehner subscribing to the same rehe torehe-- rhetorical talking points? boehner in the op-ed came out and said this sequester will do enormous damage to u.s. national security and to jobs. he said it was detrimental to both of those things which is president obama's position entirely, instead of saying that the sequester is a relatively small first step toward getting federal spending under control in a way that would ultimately help the economy. >> let we get back to my first, if sequestration isn't, maybe we'd get as many as we might have if we spent money and if we're at the status quo. >> they're
have any opposition to the suggestion we go into sequestration and allow the obama administration to move funds around to accommodate certain programs they think are the right ones to pay? >> yeah, there's a pay that the money can be moved around. for example, in the military they have 5.2 million they spent on gold fish, studying gold fish to see how democratic they were and if we could learn about democracy from gold fish. i would give the president the authority to go ahead and cut all 5 million dollars in gold fish studies. i'd give him the authority to cut off the 1.5 million that was studied rollup beef jerky last year in the pentagon's budget. so, yes, i would give him more authority if he's willing to use it to cut off some of this nonsense, but i don't really trust a lot of what's going on when i see him putting local firemen and policemen behind them and saying, republicans are going to make them lose their job. the sequester was his idea, he signed it into law and he needs to take responsibility and he needs to act responsibly and we've given him a list of cuts he could
rove launching a new video called obama's mess. >> you're in washington and sequestration are a bad idea. are you willing to see a bunch of first responders lose their jobs. teachers laid off. senior, airport security. scrambling to find child care, and vaccinations and cancer screenings, a bad idea, a booed idea. >> the sequester was the administration's idea. >> they were president obama's idea. >> the so-called sequester was the president's idea and signed it into law. >> the white house recommended it and back in august. >> and it seems like every three months around here, there's some manufacturing crisis. >> from our new york city mayor rudy guiliani joins us, good evening, mayor. >> good evening, greta. how are you. >> i'm well. i assume this video was put out to poke a little fun at the president and bob woodward by the way, put online that the president and jack lew had it wrong that it was the president and administration's idea to come up with sequestration, what difference does it make? >> the president has created this doomsday scenario in order to, you know, frighten p
